    I don't know. The NFL installed instant replay and challenges and things have worked out quite well for them. Also fining people thousands of dollars for speaking ill of referees is pathetic. The refs don't move product in the NBA. Players do.
    It's a million times easier officiating football as opposed to basketball, at any level.

    There are only 11 minutes of action in an average NFL game.

    You know how many minutes of action are in an NBA game? 48 minutes. They don't have 49 spare minutes of running clock to scrutinize replays.

    Also, protecting referees from being publicly bullied is probably a good thing, but it's easier for you to dehumanize them, so I get it.

    Neither of these teams are beating Cleveland. Don't care who wins.

    Kelly Olynyk is becoming a folklore hero.

    People forget he was a superstar in college. He's not a stranger to volume scoring.

    Markieff Morris and Marcus Morris are both ********. I can live with that. What I don't tolerate is the stupidity that comes with that.

    Washington deserves to lose. Olynyk was that hot and they made no adjustments. Just kept letting him roast them.

    I wonder what team is going to overpay Kelly Olynyk this summer based on his performance tonight? Is it possible to have a contract game?

    He's always had that ability. Still very limited on defense but he's had that skill set since Gonzaga.

    No offense to our resident C's fan, but I really hope they don't win the lottery tomorrow.

    They could get massively unlucky and wind up picking 4th. Oh the horror.

    Yeah, I was thinking that when I typed it. Enviable situation.

    Bullets need to shore up that bench this offseason.

    John Wall has wanted no part of the basketball to end this game.

    Edit: if PG ended a game 7 like Wall ended this one there would be folks saying "I don't care if he wants to stay, trade him, he's not a winning player"

    I feel for Wall and Beal. They finally put aside their differences and are easily the top backcourt in the east. They need more help, though. Gortat is finished and they don't have a reliable bench.

    Beal became a very good player this season.

    Wall can still take a leap is the scary part. Three point shooting and/or defensive effort and he's in the MVP conversation next season.
